Well, here is the start of the decaling process. So far I'm happy with the layout but I still don't know where everything is going to go until I get to that section. Playing with homemade decals is a bit of a challenge as your not always sure how an image will look once it's in place. For instance, the "next generation Bass Pro Shop" decal was done on clear film and my thoughts were that I could simply double-up the decal to get the right look but unfortunately the camo graphics still had too much bleedthrough. So, I had to print a second sheet on white decal film and then trim another image as close to the edge as possible and then lay that over what was already there. Much better except for the white film showing through in the text at the bottom. That was unavoidable. More to come by the end of the weekend.

And the last picture is the beginning of the chassis.

Looks great from here, even with the white showing through, since part of the body is painted in white.

Oh and I purchased the Other Forums Magazine today with your 70.5 Pro Mod Camaro build in it...!!! Nice to see your work being published on paper as well.

Thanks, but the Camaro build shown in that other mag. belongs to Clay Kemp, not me.

Here are a few pics. of one side of the decals/graphics completed, minus the hood scoop, which will be painted white with a couple of added decals to that. I zoomed in on a couple of more unique logos that I found online that fit right into the whole outdoors theme with the Mossberg logo and the Stihl Dogs and Logs comp. decal. The camo pattern is continued onto the rear of the body underneath the rear bumper. The bumpers will eventually be painted silver, by hand, but that will happen after the clear coat.

I also installed the wheels, front and rear, that will be used on this build. They are Pro Track aluminum slot car wheels with the seperate anodized beadlocks for the rear slicks. More detail will be added to the tires at a later time.

Wayne,

The decals you printed look great and really tie into the orange nicely!

What brand/type of clear coat will you be applying over the decals?

I haven't decided yet which clear I'm going to use. I usually use Dupli-color clear lacquer but lately I have been experimenting with either two part urethane sprayed through an airbrush or a new clear glaze that I stumbled upon at Michael's that works well over these homemade decals.

O.K., so the last update on this one was way back in October. I think it's been sidelined long enough. Back to work. More chassis work completed. The back half fits inside the body perfectly. More on this one in the days to come.

Unfortunately Lou, this is a TEM body that is no longer in business. They may be hard to come buy in the future. However, there are other casters that have a 63 Vette available.
